of the volume of potential medicare recipients or poverty level or something involving health care in nebraska that was different, then that would be a different story on the constitutionality. that is what many states in the national legislation are not alter the say because there are distinctions and many times there is horse trading that goes on as we all know. there's always a reason given buried there is no reason given here except for the one i have recited and that is one we see as unconstitutional and is likely seen as many as a symbol of the excess as of the culture of corruption and excessive spending and fiscal irresponsibility in the congress. that is not addressed in this letter. what this letter addresses is the constitutionality of that one provision after we wrote the letter, the next day which was thursday, december 31, i received a telephone call from senator gramm saying that he had received a telephone call from senator ben nelson asking him to call the dogs of. senator graham suggested to senator nelson that he call me. he called me and asked what he could do to assure us
